MSF requirements

Different tests for malaria testing are proposed in this catalogue. To decide which one to choose, please refer to your laboratory or/and malaria advisor.

Malaria tests of different brands are not interchangeable because the testing procedures are different. Before start using a new test brand read the testing procedure carefully.

High detection rate. No need for additional equipment.


Due to current difficulties to procure quality-assured sources of pan pLDH tests, only HRP2 based tests or combo tests are available even for hyper- and holo-endemic areas with intense seasonal transmission. Please refer to your laboratory or/and malaria advisor to define the best option in your case.
